Born: 19 May 2009
2009 Piebald Gypsy Filly (Rock Ranch Nelson Granddaughter)"
Ziva is an exquisite piebald filly born May 19, 2009. Ziva's name is Hebrew for "bright" and
"radiant". She has embodied these characteristics from the day she was born. She takes
after her mom with her refined dished profile and her similarly marked body. We expect her
to display sabino (roan) markings like Zaira. Ziva has a high neck carriage and elegant
movement that makes it impossible to keep your eyes off her as she floats around the field.
Ziva comes from excellent lines on both sides; her maternal grand-dam is our imported
Irish mare Ailish, and her maternal grandsire is Rock Ranch Nelson, an English-bred stallion
now in California. Zaira was part of one of the last foal crops of Nelson, whose studbook is
now closed for outside breedings. Her sire is our stud Vimto, who comes from the
well-known Vines lines. Ziva is an excellent combination of her sire and dam, and has taken
on the best attributes of each. Her temperament and athleticism will allow her to excel in
any discipline asked of her. She has showy, springy gaits that would shine under harness,
in the dressage ring, or in western disciplines. She also has a sweet personality and good
mind suitable for a trail or pleasure horse, or family pet.
Ziva leads, loads and is great for the farrier. She is friendly with the other horses. She has
been raised by a Natural Horsemanship family.
